A Privacy-Friendly Model for an Efficient and Effective Activity Scheduling Inside Dynamic Virtual Organizations

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering book series (LNICST, volume 163)


The cooperation among people is one of the key factors for most processes and activities. The efficiency and the effectiveness of the cooperation has an intrinsic value, which significantly affects performances and outcomes. Open communities, as well as spontaneous or predefined virtual organizations, are demanding for a more solid and consistent support for activity scheduling and managing in a context of flexibility and respect of the individual needs. This paper proposes a privacy-friendly model to support virtual organizations in the scheduling and management of their most valuable resource: the time.
